Who will join The Rock's 'G.I. Joe' squad?
After the first two weeks of voting, you chose Randy Orton and Divas Champion Kaitlyn to fight alongside The Great One. Finally, the Legend you recruited for this highly classified affair is none other than my fellow WWE Hall of Famer, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin!
Grab your poster and don’t miss the most action-packed movie this year, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” in theaters now! AND THAT’S AN ORDER!
A-ten-hut! At ease, troops. They say that behind every great man there’s a great woman, which is probably why you chose Divas Champion Kaitlyn as the second member of The Rock’s “G.I. Joe” team. But your mission isn’t over yet! We’ve still got one more squadmate to choose, and this time, we’re going “old school.”
In “G.I. Joe Retaliation,” the Joes need to team with a veteran soldier (played by Bruce Willis) to take the fight to Cobra in a big way, so it only makes sense for The Rock to have a WWE Legend backing him up. And based on the war The People’s Champ waged with Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania X8, The Great One knows a thing or two about what us old-timers are capable of.
In front of more than 68,000 WWE Universe members packed inside Toronto’s SkyDome, The Brahma Bull overcame the power of “Hulkamania” — a force that was too tough to stomp out for even Ol’ Sarge 11 years earlier at WrestleMania VII. Whichever WWE Legend joins up with The Rock’s “G.I. Joe” team is gonna need that same type of strength to deal with what Cobra is cookin’ up.
Since I’m retired from active field duty, I need YOU to choose the most powerful WWE Legend to join up with The Rock. So who’s it gonna be? Cast your vote, then come back next week to see the full team assembled for the first time ever. AND THAT’S AN ORDER!
At ease, troops! In our first round of voting, you chose Randy Orton to join The Rock’s Superstar “G.I. Joe” squad, and I don’t blame ya. After all, who better than The Viper to make those Cobra pukes slither back to their nests?
We’ve still got two team members to go, and since Momma Slaughter raised me right, it’s ladies first! We’re gonna need a Diva that not only has beauty and strength, but also brains … the kind of smarts The Rock needed when he challenged “The Cerebral Assassin,” Triple H, for the WWE Championship at Backlash 2000.
With his cornerman “Stone Cold” Steve Austin nowhere in sight for most of the match, The Brahma Bull needed to keep his head on a swivel and his wits sharp, not only going up against The Game and special guest referee Shane McMahon, but also The Chairman and his “stooges.” In the end, thanks to some craftiness and an equalizer in the form of The Texas Rattlesnake, The Rock scored the pin and the WWE Title.
Since you all know that “knowing is half the battle” — or at least you SHOULD know by now — it’s time to choose the brains of The Rock’s top-secret “G.I. Joe” operation. So who’s it gonna be? Vote for the most cunning Diva on the roster, then come back next week to find out who made the cut. AND THAT’S AN ORDER!
A-ten-hut! Listen up, troops. This is Sgt. Slaughter — DRILL Sgt. Slaughter — with an important message. Since Ol’ Sarge is both a WWE Hall of Famer and a former member of G.I. Joe, you’ve seen me tangle with maggots from every walk of life, from The Nasty Boys all the way to Serpentor. These days, I leave the Cobra clobberin’ to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who stars in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” stormin’ into theaters on March 28.
As Roadblock in the new flick, The Rock knows how important it is to have a team at your back, which gave me the idea to put together a special “G.I. Joe” squad for him. Why? IT’S CLASSIFIED! All you need to know is that for the next three weeks, you get to vote on who gets to join The Rock for a top-secret mission … beginning now!
But first, let’s look back on The Rock’s WrestleMania debut at WrestleMania 13, when he defended the Intercontinental Championship against The Sultan. Now, I’ve never been a cruiserweight, but The Sultan was definitely doublin’ up on his rations back in those days! Facing a larger opponent, the young Rock picked up his first WrestleMania win with a quick roll-up. ( WATCH)
The People’s Champ had speed on his side when he took down The Sultan — something the first member of The Rock’s squad of Superstar Joes is gonna need. So who will it be? If you don’t want to drop and give me 50, cast your votes NOW to determine which speedy competitor has what it takes. Then, come back next week to see who made the cut. AND THAT’S AN ORDER!
